Good reason to make a muslin

I'm making a pair of linen pants to make to wear to my Granddaughter's wedd ing. It's a very casual affair. I decided to use Jalie 3243. and put in different pockets. Don't like the o nes the pattern shows. So I did all my measurements and made a muslin. For some reason, I'm not sure why, they are just to tight. So I started over a nd got them to fit . I'm just so glad I made the muslin, I hate to have ru ined that nice linen by being lazy.
